Earlier this month, one of Iran’s top actresses, Taraneh Alidoosti, posted a photo on Instagram without the mandatory hijab while holding a sign with the protest slogan, “women, life, freedom”.
Iranian cinema personalities were under pressure even before the start of the protest movement sparked by Amini’s death.
Award-winning directors Mohammad Rasoulof and Jafar Panahi remain in custody after being arrested earlier this year.
According to human rights groups, more than 15,000 people have been arrested since nationwide protests began in Iran, following the death of 22-year-old Mahsa Amini after her arrest by the notorious vice squad.
